    TORCA recently had the privilege of meeting a truly inspirational group of people when we were asked by OutriderUSA and Epictrip.org to be part of a focus group on a project that helps bring awareness to adaptive cycling and the possibilities to expand adaptive opportunities for people with spinal injuries.

    One of those people we met was Chris Wenner who is responsible for the development and construction of a one of a kind battery powered "trike" that will power him almost 11,000 miles around the country . It uses specially designed toggles that allow for anyone with even limited use of their upper body, the ability to ride the road and even the potential to ride in remote areas and trails. Chris will be embarking on an Epic trip around the perimeter of the US on this one of a kind machine!! We are proud and honored to be a resource for Epictrip.org and invite you to take a look at this amazing story! Please check out Chris' FB page at facebook.com/epictriporg. Stay tuned as to how you can help and be involved with this amazing group of people.

    TORCA’s Big Night.

    Over 110 people showed up to lend their support of TORCA’s efforts and watch both of Anthill Films’ productions “Not Bad” and “Arrival”. A standing room only, packed house of movie goers were treated to a movie that has not even been released to the public yet. In attendance were families, kids of all ages, industry and bike shop personnel, local shredders and we even had a visit from the GROAZ folks that made the drive from Phoenix to join In on the fun.

    The Coastal Crews’ film featured clips filmed in Rio De Janeiro, Vancouver Island’s Sunshine coast, Lillooet B.C., and of course Whistler B.C.. TORCA had tons raffle prizes to give away courtesy of our sponsors Fairwheel Bikes, Arizona Cyclists, Club Ride Apparel out of Sun Valley Idaho and Angelfire Bike Park. One lucky winner even won a trip to Angelfire Bike park to shred! TORCA would like to give a huge “thank you” to Jon Alubowicz, owner of Risky Business


    (and a mtber) for lending a helping hand and offering up his restaurant as the venue for the movie premiere. Your support and generosity is really appreciated Jon! TORCA would also like to thank it’s now 75 members for supporting it’s grass roots efforts. The movie premiere was a blast and we can’t wait to do it again soon!

    Cheers!

    On October 19th, T.O.R.C.A. tackled one of Tucson riders' favorite trails, Milagrosa, for some much needed trail work. We had 15 brave souls join us for a long productive day of work. We split into 3 groups. One group headed up Catalina Highway picking up trash along the roadside from Molino Basin to Gordon H. campground. Crew two hiked the entire length of Millie from Molino Basin down. They concentrated their efforts on erosion control and pruning on the first decent of Molino, then continued pruning as they worked their way down, stopping the pruning at the Rock Garden to get out before dark. Crew three came up from the bottom and worked on all the loose rocks and sand that had been accumulating on the bottom half. All in all it was a very productive day on a Tucson gem that needed some work. Come out and join us again for round two with Millie December 8th. We will be pruning the rest of the trail from the rock garden down to the gate, and working on cleaning up more sand and loose rocks that are washing into the trail.

    T.O.R.C.A.'s November trail work brought us down off the mountain to tackle a Bunny. The Bunny Trail that is. We tasked ourselves with getting it ready for its big day: The Dirty Bunny. Twelve awesome people showed up and we all grabbed loppers, jumped on our bikes, and got to work. The plan was to just tackle the 5-6 miles on Bunny Trail only and get it pruned up and racked of some sandy areas. The 12 of us made short work of it and in just 3hrs we had Bunny Trail looking better than it has in years. It's so awesome, now that we have had 3 big work days on the Tucson trails, to see what a dedicated bunch of riders we have coming out and helping keep our trails running.
